One of the most breathtaking views at sunrise to see Lake Garda lit up in golden light!

Drive through Riva Del Garda and park along the road once you get past the factory. The trailhead is right before the first tunnel on the right-hand side, it will be clearly marked. 

You will be on the north side of the lake and you will be able to see Riva Del Garda throughout your hike as you ascend. There are two clearly marked paths, one for mountain biking and one for hiking. 

This is a clear gravel path the entire way up and if you arrive toward lunch time there is a coffeeshop at the top where you can have a snack! 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
